Hi there,m^(2) wrote:It's a very slight problem. Download them and put int the apps folder. It will work. Actually you need only MSVCRT80.dll and MSVCP80.dll. I guess that such information should be included in the readme.justsky wrote:Not to belabor the subject but I want to learn. His readme called for a download from microsoft and installation in the OS. I don't ever remember having to do that so is the runtime usually part of the program download. If it is not included with the program how can that program be called portable?
you know before releasing i have tried what you mentioned, packaging and shipping MSVCRT80.dll and MSVCP80.dll , but when i went to a cyber cafe in a small village during Christmas vacation, where they had pretty old machine, i just tried it there, and it dint work. It said
"Application failed to start blaw blaw because the side by side configuration is incorrect" , i checked with dependency walker, all required files were present but that also gave the same error than I downloaded VC++ 2005 runtime and installed and it still din't work, and then I downloaded and installed VC++ 2005 SP1 runtime and it worked, then i recalled yeah i developed this app using VS2005 SP1 so it does need that runtime. and i had exactly one user so far who had complained me for my previous version v1.0.112 that it doesn't work in his machine, he was from Florida, i emailed him and asked him to try VS 2005 SP1 runtime and it made PMW 1.1.12 work on his machine too .....
As rightly pointed out by queue most people don't need it. as they already have it. this is for just in case if you don't haveQueue wrote:Because you may not need (because you already have) that particular C++ runtime. He's listing it in the readme just in case you don't.
